Grand Place

Considered one of the most beautiful medieval squares in Europe, the ornate Grand Place is the center of Brussels, where many historic buildings dating from the 17th century are located.

Reviewed By Nicky A - Somerset, United Kingdom

We came here a few times, once for coffee/beer in a side café, once to find a geocache, and once to get some tourist information. The square is exquisite.
Wheelchair accessibility
It is bumpy, but perfectly doable. I was in my manual chair with husband pushing, and it was fairly hard work. The tourist information is upstairs so I had to wait outside. At the café I sat on the pavement next to my husband on the raised café platform.

Train World

Train World is a showcase for the Railways of the past, present and future. We are not just another railway museum; we are more of a train opera. Visit us and spend an unforgettable day in the Train World universe. You will discover the most beautiful and unique pieces from the history of the Belgian Railways. We combine the fascinating story of the train throughout the centuries with a look into the future; a combination that has been deliberately applied in every story. You will find us in the Schaerbeek station, one of Belgium’s oldest and most original station buildings. Together with the new museum complex in the form of a sawtooth shape, this location represents a wonderful symbiosis of old and new in the Art Nouveau heart of Schaerbeek.

A lot of reviews seem to focus on this being a place for kids, but adults too can be entertained for a good 2 hours. The exhibits are impressive and plentiful, spread over 3 huge halls, from the earliest days of steam right up to the latest Eurostar, Thalys or ICE trains. Thoughtful sections on history such as the living conditions of railway workers or the role of Railways in the holocaust gave gravitas and social context too. Very well laid out and the audioguide was excellent. Highly recommended.

Leonidas Cora Woluwe

Reviewed By bepper263 - Brussels, Belgium

The brand Leonidas, which has just completed its centenary from the founding (1913), is certainly one of the best-known brands in Belgium and abroad for this typical and unique chocolate, thanks to a widespread and established product.
During our visit to Brussels, in the short path between the Grande Place and the Manneken Pis we stopped to buy pralines in this boutique of the manufacturer, attracted by advertising for a new praline presented to tourists' passers-by.
A well-presented locale, a confectionery offering the typical products and packages of the season, without excess but without falling style.

Rene Magritte House Museum

Reviewed By RachelCockett

The Museum is in a residential area. A pleasant walk from the Metro. When you arrive you have to ring the bell. I arrived just as an English language tour was about to begin which was convenient. The guide was knowledgeable and showed how objects in the house, such as the door handles, had contributed directly to Magritte's surrealist symbolism. There is a display of personal objects and printed works. Good insight into Magritte's life.
Do this first museum first, then go the Musee Magritte Museum, where his major artworks are on display.

Le Botanique

The Botanique has become a cultural Centre since 1984. Formally, it was a Botanique garden, with gorgious greenhouses. Nowadays, it still show its wonderful architecture, together with up-to-date concert venues (Orangerie, Rotonde, Witloof Bar ...). Discover our many Concerts over the year through our website or visit our galery called Museum, with its 4 or 5 big Exhibitions a year (photography, paintings, ...).

Reviewed By Philippaho - Hong Kong, China

Made a trip specially to visit here and was gently disappointed as the grounds aren't that large and wasn't much to experience or see. Still a nice green breath of fresh air amidst its surroundings, and caught a whiff of lavender fresh in the wind. Otherwise, nothing special and rather something to see on your way elsewhere. Quiet stroll and peaceful atmosphere to spend some quality time with a friend or family.

Parc Josaphat

Reviewed By How-did-I-get-here - Edinburgh

This is one of Brussels ‘green lungs’; an area to escape the noise of the city. Bordered by trees – many imported from around the world for their interesting leaves, bark and shape – the park has many statues and sculptures of local worthies who have no doubt contributed to the park and Belgian society.
As usual in Brussels you get the impression that this must all have been very beautiful, very grand, 100 years ago, maybe even just 50 years ago, but now the ponds are choked, the park is getting dug up, paths are blocked, the café is surrounded by a wire fence… even the donkeys look as if they are on their last legs. And yet this is still a beautiful park to walk round. We saw a wedding party using the park as a backdrop for their photos, children in groups from the schools getting lessons sitting on the grass, the local community having a picnic day. This is a great park, you could be miles away from the city. Enjoy what is left while it is still available.

Guildhouses

Reviewed By Neil K - Liverpool, United Kingdom

There's not really much to say as words cannot do justice to the absolutely amazing Guildhouses and the amazing Grand Place ( Grote Markt ) .
The rows of Guildhouses look magnificent during the daylight when you can appreciate the great detail of these wonderful structures but come the night time there magical when illuminated and it's hardly surprising that this square has been voted the best in Europe and so in my opinion the best in the world and is a Unesco world heritage site.
Besides the wonderful Guildhouses you have City Hall and the Museum Of The City Of Brussels and innumerable pubs,bars and restaurants in this square,which makes it Brussels number one tourist attraction by far.
Well worth checking out.

Atomium

Unavoidable icon of Brussels and Belgium, unique creation in the history of architecture and emblematic vestige of the World Fair in Brussels (Expo 58); the Atomium is the most popular tourist attraction of the Europe’s Capital.

Reviewed By Ccristina_1989 - Majorca, Spain

The entrance to the Atomium is 15€ per adult and it includes taking the elevator to the highest level and then entrance to the other levels that hold info and pictures about the construction of the Atomium and other art Exhibitions. There is also a restaurant but bear in mind you need to book in advance. The ticket also includes visit to the ADAM museum that just 5 minute walk. ‎

Town Hall (Hotel de Ville)

Reviewed By Ashwathram r - Kochi (Cochin), India

Ones eyes can never miss this fascinating building in the Grand Place, Brussels. The improper proportion of the building construction with the central tower will amuse everyone. There are free Concerts happening inside the Town hall and you can really enjoy if ur a music lover. At night the Building is lit up with lights and decors. The interiors of the concert halls are grand and artistic with art and architectural works.
